OM-D E-M1 Mark II

Olympus has announced that the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, announced at Photokina, will be available from December 2016. 

The flagship camera has a 20 megapixel live MOS sensor and features an in body, on sensor 5-axis image stabilisation system. It also boasts best in class high speed AF featuring 121 all cross - type points. It's splashproof, freeze proof and dust proof, with 2 SD card slots.

The camera will be available body only for £1849.99, or in a kit with the M.Zuiko digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens for £2399.99. 

Also available from December 2016 will be a new STF-8 macro flash, at £449.99. This compact and lightweight flash features sealing technology cultivated on cameras and lenses to deliver the world's first dust-, splash- and freezeproof macro twin flash. In combination with weatherproof OM-D models and lenses, this system is highly versatile in any shooting environment and allows shooting with confidence even in rain or morning dew-splashed outdoor scenes.

The STF-8 twin flash is designed for a perfect output to match macro shooting, with a guide number of 8.5 when both heads are fired, and 6 when firing one head. The output ratio of left and right flash head (A/B) can be set from 1:8 to 8:1 through two dials on the control panel. In addition to high-precision TTL auto sync, the output can be fine-tuned for manual flash firing within 1/1 to 1/128. The full control of the flash output makes it easier to avoid overexposure. Shadows can be controlled to emphasize depth of subjects, and accurately reflect your intentions for creative expressions. Precise output control also helps to shorten charging times by setting the appropriate flash output.
